This page now includes just the basic free version of the ImagePaste plugin. Following versions have been renamed to SimpleUploads, that plugin isn't free and includes lots of features that aren't available in this one.
This plugin takes care of images pasted or dropped in Firefox to convert them to uploaded files and avoid the problems caused by embedding huge base64 images into a page (no separate caching, worse performance, incompatibility with some mail clients, some servers might strip them out when you try to save them, problems trying to edit those images in CKEditor....)
You just need to have a QuickUploader configured in CKEditor and add this plugin, then it will take care of convert the pasted images with Firefox into normal files stored at your server.
Again: This plugin is targetted only at Firefox, it takes the base64 data-encoded URI images and converts them into normal files.
The recommended way to install all CKEditor add-ons is to create a custom build by using Online builder. To do that, click the Add to my editor button on the plugin page. When you are done, click the Build my editor button on the right side of the page to go to Online builder.
Note: This add-on is already selected to be a part of your current build.
Add-on installation instructions
If you want to add the plugin manually, you will need to:
- Extract the downloaded plugin
pluginsfolder of your CKEditor installation. Example:
- Enable the plugin by using the
extraPluginsconfiguration setting. Example:
config.extraPlugins = 'imagepaste';
- Download and configure all its dependencies, too.
No additional dependencies.
Note: The plugin may have additional requirements. Check the add-on page and documentation for more details.
